the communities -- the communities also would. in terms of training, we have had this discussion about fbi staff training. the train was utilizing stereotypic erroneous information. we brought that to you, and you're telling us, you're looking at, making sure that these things would be eliminated and addressed. since then, i have heard a couple more times that certain regions have been doing that again. i would like an update on that train. in this area. tomade changes to that end my understanding, those changes have been adopted. training meets the appropriate standards. if you have instances that you have heard that is not accurate, i would appreciate knowing it but i have not heard of any such instances. i believe that other entities emulated what we have done in terms of assuring the validity of our training materials curry >> they may have hired contractors to do the training. step to be a serious ensure they follow the rules. >> included a review of any contractors utilizing our allrials to assure that live up to our standards. >> i appreciate that. i'm going to go back to mr. serrano beca

long. >>> for more we bring in former fbi special agent brad garrett. we heard for investigators the worst sort of case, a crime at this point without motive and without suspects. the murder of a top corrections official obviously very unusual but there's belief it could actually be related to a specific ruling that he made about a case just one week ago. at this point, brad, what are your thoughts here? >> well, i don't know if you can jump to that conclusion. in other words, mr. clements' position as director of the department of corrections could well have -- it may be a job-related homicide like your example, but just as relevant is the personal side of mr. clements. is this something that has to do with another aspect of his life, his family's life and so investigators are stuck, i believe, at this point at looking at this very large circle. did he know the person who arrived at his home that ultimately shot him? was that a prearranged meeting and hopefully the police have figured that out at this point. so there's a lot of moving parts to this case, but it doesn't appear to

that happens within texas' prison, and law enforcement officials say the fbi was making phone calls. the governor reacted to this by saying, quote, we don't know yet whether this is exactly the guy, and there's some indication, and i hope it is. the story is we don't know what the motive might be in the killing of clements. tuesday night's shooting happened hours before the colorado governor was due to sign into law the hotly contested new gun reform legislation. they announced the murder of the prison's director at 8:30 yesterday, and then they had the new limit in simi automatic rifles. sources have said there is not any reason to connect the killing of a state's prison chief, or to broader political issues. still in response to the murder, security has been uped. one potential connection at least that is getting a lot of attention in the colorado press is tom clements' direct involvement in the man named al ataour key. it was almost seven years ago he was convicted of keeping a woman as a slave in his house sexually assaulting her. and last year he wrote to him personally letting

is harry wu. how are you going to respond recently fbi arrest in nsa? secondly i want to ask about china human rights issue, you know, -- [inaudible] and china have forced abortion every year. and china -- [inaudible] -- organ transplant a couple thousand a year. number two country of the world. just very large human rights issue. i hope you can talk about the human rights issue, let's more talk about economic trade with china. >> i think that both issues are important. it is important to economically engage china. i think of evolution in terms of human rights is partly dependent upon what we do to put information into china about what's happening on the ground in china in real-time in order to expose these types of abuses. and that is best done through radio free asia. but it is also done to other legislation that we have enacted in which we have an institution year on the hill that -- and i'm a member of the hearings that we hold on this issue, which elevate human rights, and which he gets that information out into the international press. so it's partly getting the information out to
in 2011. >> no federal government employees, including counterterrorism agents, in the fbi, for example, no border agents. now, before we default, we could have time to make this sign for all points of entry. that's just the tip of the iceberg. >> i think he was being sarcastic, don't you? >>> now to the ones who were ill advised for whatever reason. first iowa republican congressman steve king with the solution for illegal immigration in the form of a construction project on the house floor. >> you can't shut that off unless we build a fence and wall. i want to put a fence in and a wall in. i designed one. this would be an example, then, of how that wall would look. you can also deconstruct it the same way. you can take it back down. i also say we need to do a few other things on top of that wall. one of them put a little bit of wire on top to provide a disincentive for people to climb over top or put a ladder there. we can electrify this wire, not a current that would kill anybody, but would be a deterrent. we do it in livestock all the time. >> now for one that made the loser list. i
and the fbi was on the scene this afternoon making phone calls. colorado's governor reacted to all this saying we don't know yet whether this is the guy. there's some indication. i hope it is. the overall story here is still that we do not know what the motive might be for the killing. whether it was related to the job running the prisons or colorado state politics more broadly or neither of these issues. tuesday's shooting happened hours before the colorado governor was to sign into law the hotly contested new gun legislation last week and he went on as scheduled later that morning to sign into law the state's new background state legislation and state magazines for ammunition in semi-automatic handguns. law enforcement sources have said there -- have not said there is any reason to connect the killing of states prisons chief to his work in the prisons or broader political issues in colorado. still, though, in response to the murder, security has been upped, both for the governor himself and for other members of the state's cabinet. now, one possible connection between tom clements' work and

this country. according to the fbi we saw a record 19 1/2 million background checks for firearms last year. nearly three million of them coming in december alone. that is the most for any month on record. and more than 7 million from december through february. that is a 54% increase from the previous year. this national trend is echoed in the microcosm of newtown, connecticut. where law enforcement say they have seen the pace of applications for gun permits double. so what does this all mean for the gun control debate, an effort going forward? joining me fox news political analyst juan williams. juan, we can talk about the strategy here and move onto the legislation itself. why, why did harry reid make the decision? >> didn't have the votes, jenna lee. it is very clear he does not feel if this can get through and it further could endanger efforts that he is making on the gun control front and central among them would be making sure that you punish people who are straw purchasers of illegal, of weapons in order to hand them over to others who don't have the right to buy guns, couldn't get t

, justice part, science so we are properly, i think, funding things like the f.b.i., the d.e.a., law enforcement agencies, the commerce and trade divisions, as well as all of the others included in the bill. so, mr. speaker, this is a good bill. i'm proud of it. i'm proud of the fact that we were able to do all of this, frankly, as smoothly as it has gone. that's a tribute to the work of people like nita lowey, the new ranking member on the full committee, and the work of senator richard shelby, ranking republican on the senate side. of course the new chairman of the committee over there, senator barbara mikulski. all of us work together and we were determined to produce a product that would be good for the nation, number one, but as it turns out i think it's good for this body and the senate. we proved when we set our mind to it we can get complicated, hard things done. and that's what this bill does. so, mr. speaker, i urge an aye vote on 933. yield back. the speaker pro tempore: all time for debate has expired. pursuant to the order of the house on wednesday, march 20, 2013, the p
